[ booing ] >> because it represents the worse of both worlds. i had a feeling there would be mixed reaction, so let me get into it. it weakens care for today's seniors and puts it at risk for the next generation. >> eliot: he brought his retired mother with him. don't do that to your mom. next time leave her at home rather than subject h
